Our students have formed a strong community based on mutual cooperation and participation. They assist each other with their filmmaking projects and become involved with extracurricular student organizations. Through Film Society, students organize screenings of 35mm films for the campus and the community. Through Keene Television students produce television programming for the local community and record various academic or community events. Students participate in the annual Film Production Conference, the Critical Studies Conference, and have the opportunity to do internships with a variety of institutions (see the list below). These opportunities enhance student life and add to the student experience of a liberal arts education. Many of our students have gone on pursue their interest in film through graduate study, through professional jobs within the film industry, or as freelance film professionals and independent film artists.
